Is It Time?

Well, even though it is still a lovely 100 degrees here in the desert, I guess it is it? I have started to slowly add some Fall elements to our home. If I do it all at once, by the end of October I am ready to chuck it all in the gives me nightmares to have all that "stuff" in the house. Even though our leaves don't change, the colors of the desert I guess lend themselves to the colors we think of when Autumn approaches. Certainly the colors of my house do, especially with the Satillo tile we have throughout. I have struggled with this "sort" of house since I moved out here from the Midwest. If I could choose any style home it would probably be a cottage style with beadboard walls and white slipcovered furniture. Out here it is all about the "Southwest vibe". I just cannot go there in my mind, so have tried to find some sort of happy medium with my style. I like all sorts of things and try to shy away from anything "mass produced". I have several paintings in the house that my mom has done, including the two on the background walls. I love to decorate and spend many nights trying to fall asleep wondering what else I can accomplish in the house. Does anyone else do this? What I really want to accomplish is a home that when one enters they feel comfortable and instantly at home. I also love looking at other people's spaces. I am addicted to decorating blogs now and could spend hours getting inspired. Enjoy your Fall decorating ( and your leaves changing!: )
